Well ... i don't think it's the best solution, you're right.
And thanks for the exaplanation about wikifarms (i searched on internet,
and found nothing yesterday).

Can the infrastructure do that ?

Maybe it could help to know that we (in french team) include the
original page name in our pages (the first line, commented). See, for
example, .
If this was done for each translated pages, maybe it could be a way to

And, anyway, if we decide to use bots, we can start using subpages,
until bots are coded.
